The history of the Colt Govt M1911 Pistol began in early 1900s, when famous designer John M. Browning began to develop semi-automatic pistols for Colt Company. In 1906-1907 the U.S. Army announced trials to replace its service revolvers with a new, semi-automatic pistol. The Army required the new pistol to have the caliber of .45 inch, so Browning designed its own cartridge that fired a 230-grain (14.9 gram) bullet, and then, designed the new pistol around it. In 1911, the new pistol and its cartridge were adopted for U.S. military service as the M1911. The improved design was adopted by the US Military as the M1911A1 pistol, and served with distinction until the mid-1980s.
KWA has replicated this iconic service pistol in an airsoft version as the KWA M1911A1. True to the real firearm counterpart, the KWA M1911A1 features the same functions as the real M1911A1. The frame of the lower receiver is composed of steel and the slide is made of aluminum alloy. The KWA M1911A1 also features a working thumb safety and grip safety. Like the real M1911A1, the KWA M1911A1 has fixed irons sights.

"The pistol is gorgeous. They did an excellent job on capturing the feel of the 1911a1. The dissasembly is the easiest ive ever seen. (This can be fixed by you at home!)My only issue is the mag releases spring is too weak. Many people ive seen are having issues where the mag falls out durring use. Just grab your m1911a, twist the samll screw like piece thats parts of the mag release, pull out the mag release pin, (its one piece so dont be scared) then acces the spring and just stretch out the sping with your hands, and put it back in. I haven't had my m1911a1s mag release screw up since i stretched out the sping. I deducted 1 star from my review because of this. I hope this helps someone
"Very realistic M1911A1 pistol. Heavy weight, very accurate. I installed a tight bore 6.01 Angel barrel and get 2" groupings from 30 feet away. Highly recommended for the WWII airsofter or reenactor. Would buy this gun again hands down no problem. Use an exacto knife to cut off the orange tip. Do not attempt to pull the tip off with plyers or you will damage the rest of the barrel.

Got this amazing Airsoft pistol last week. As I collect WWII Airsoft guns this one was well worth picking up.
Very sturdy construction and heavy weight feel. The orange barrel tip is a detractor but can be removed using a razor type box cutter knife. Do not use plyers to try and pull off the tip as you will damage the outer barrel itself.
Test fired 2 mags indoors with .25 bb's and this gun is very accurate with 2" groupings from 25' away.
Would buy again !
